Recently I was asked to discuss the Reintroduction Phase of The Low FODMAP Diet with the lovely Larah on her ‘Journey into the low FODMAP diet‘ Podcasts and to present on this important phase of the low FODMAP diet at The International IBS Summit.
I met Larah when I was travelling through Australia and she is a fantastic advocate for getting the right advice from professionals to diagnose the reason for gastrointestinal symptoms and seeking evidenced based treatments to self manage IBS and functional gut symptoms. In the podcasts we discussed everything to do with reintroducing FODMAPs which you can listen to by following the link below. There is also a full transcript of our conversation so for an overview of the practicalities of how to do reintroduce FODMAPs back into your diet head over to Larah’s podcasts:
I was also asked by a dietitian colleague who organises many educational events on IBS and also allergy to present online at The International IBS Summit. The International IBS Summit is is free online from 2nd-6th December 2016 (and available after this time for the paid versions of all the presentations). It is five days of sharing knowledge to learn what the best option is for you to treat your irritable bowel syndrome. Register now to make sure your place is guaranteed to watch the online presentations for free once they are available.
In the presentation I discuss:
- Three phases of the low FODMAP diet
- Two parts to the Reintroduction of FODMAPs
- Current thinking & best practice on Re-challenging FODMAPs
- Misinformation on Re-challenging
- Reintroducing FODMAPs
- Research on the Reintroduction Phase
- Long term self management – Modified low FODMAP diet
If you register for information on the event you can also obtain a copy of my ‘Mini Guide to Re-Challenging and Reintroducing FODMAPs by Lee Martin MSc RD‘.
It has been so nice to discuss the reintroduction of FODMAPs on these two platforms. I hope it helps provide more people with the information and inspiration to complete the low FODMAP diet properly and reintroduce high FODMAP foods to their personal tolerance levels. This is the best way to maintain long term symptoms control of your IBS and functional gut symptoms.
